Waikiki Meatballs

I got this recipe from my friend Camille when I was first married.


  • 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
  • 2/3 cup cracker crumbs
  • 2/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. ginger
  • Mix together and roll into meatballs.  Brown and cook over medium heat in large skillet.
  • Sauce:
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup vinegar
  • 3 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 can pineapple tidbits
  • 2/3 cup chopped green pepper

Mix cornstarch and brown sugar. Drain pineapple juice into mixture with the vinegar and soy sauce. Add green pepper and pineapple to meatballs.  Once cooked through add the sauce mixture and cook until thickened.  Serve over rice.  Double the sauce ingredients to get more sauce for the rice.  Keeps well in a crock pot.
